, this morning officials tell nbc news he's awake and using pen and paper to answer questions from investigators. all of this as the fbi says it has obtained surveillance footage showing tsarnaev putting down his backpack near the finish line just minutes before the explosion. massachusetts governor deval patrick says he's been briefed on the footage. >> the suspect took the backpack off, put it down, did not react when the first explosion went off and then moved away from the backpack in time for the second explosion, so pretty clear about his involvement and pretty chilling, frankly. >> all right, so while we wait on that video, i want you to look at these new infrared images released showing the final intense moments of the manhunt. stun grenades just exploded as police moved in to capture the 19-year-old, and it capped a nearly four-day search for dzhokhar and his older brother, tamerlan, and while the nation was reeling, we are getting word this morning that the brothers actually carried on with their normal lives. dzhokhar was seen working out at a college gym the day after the bombings wh
, we have a little bit of new information. actually, just in in the last couple of minutes from nbc news on this specifically. and i want to tell you what nbc has told us. sources involved are telling nbc news that the pressure cooker bombs in boston were designed and placed to act quote like a homemade clay moor, a powerful directional antipersonnel device, so they don't spray in 360 degrees. they're directional. so these sources are telling nbc news, these and other sources, the triggering mechanism appears to have included a battery pack and a circuit board, elements of a sophisticated triggering mechanism. bo quote it appeared to be built from scratch, but with a sophisticated triggering mechanism. all bombs are crude devices and it is the way they are triggered that can be sophisticated. they functioned as designed. pressure cookers are exactly what you are thinking. they are metal cooking pots that clamp the top down tight with a tight seal allowing you to cook food faster under pressure with a normal lid like a normal pot. if it sounds like i am not a person who cooks, you're
to the fbi in this investigation. the fbi tells nbc news it is following some promising leads. one in particular, video and images collected by authorities showing someone carrying a heavy backpack or duffle bag and placing it at the spot where the second bomb went off. key evidence is also being obtained from footage captured by a video camera above one of the bomb sites. that camera was on top of the lord & taylor department store. despite conflicting reports in the media, none of which came from this network, there has been no arrest of any individual or individuals at this time. the fbi and boston police are calling for restraint from the news media. adding to the confusion here in boston today, the federal courthouse was evacuated earlier this afternoon. employees were given what is known as a code red order to leave as a result of a bomb scare. we've obtained more tote toes from the bomb sites. here's a closer look at the fragments left from the pieces of a pressure cooker. nbc news' pete williams points out that one of the pressure cooker lids ended up on the roof of a nearb
coverage, "nbc nightly news" from boston begins now. >> announcer: "terror in boston." this is "nbc nightly news with brian williams" reporting tonight from boston. >> well, good evening from boston, just a few blocks from where the explosions rocked the finish line at the boston marathon yesterday. it was a shocking event in the life of this city. today receiving, of course, widespread coverage as yet another terrorist incident in our post-9/11 era. here's where the toll stands tonight. three dead, 176 injured, 71 people are still hospitalized. 24 of them in critical condition. among the dead, a boston university grad student, an 8-year-old boy, martin richard, from dorchester and 29-year-old krystle campbell of medford, mass. we learned today the president will be coming here on thursday for an interfaith service. at the white house today flags were at half-staff, and we heard again from the president who, for the first time, used the word "terrorism" to describe what happened here. >> the fbi is investigating it as an act of terrorism. anytime bombs are used to target innocent civilians,
of terrorists. >> nbc news justice correspondent pete williams is live with us right now. i know you've been reviewing these charges. what's the latest on what you've uncovered? >> it is a fairly interesting sequence of things that the government cites here as evidence. first of all they say that there was a surveillance tape that shows what apparently is the second suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, the man in the hospital, placing the bomb at the second bombing. this is unrelated picture to what i'm talking about now. but this is the person we're talking about. but the surveillance tape was taken at the scene of the second bombing. you may recall that there was a restaurant there called the foreign restaurant. they say a surveillance camera there shows him walking up to the restaurant with his backpack on. that he takes a cell phone off, seems to be using it for a while, then seems to be talking on it. and then after he finishes the call, the first explosion goes off. he can be seen reto it. and i'm wondering if this isn't a little bit of confusion to see the pictures we're showing now. maybe we
with waco pd telling nbc news that "i can tell you there are hundreds of individuals that have been injured. some are potentially going to be casualties, but no solid number of fatalities or injured." but the reports that we are hearing, again, the number we're hearing over and over again is hundreds. we don't know if that means one, two. we don't know the full extent of this. we are hearing reports that a number of patients are being treated at area hospitals for burns, that they are treating burn victims at this time. and then a number of patients, at least 38 at one facility alone, are considered seriously injured. we also know there's been extensive damage to buildings surrounding the explosion, that the force of that explosion damaged 75 to 100 buildings in the surrounding area. we've shown some video this evening of a nursing home that was extremely damaged. they had to evacuate that facility altogether. and so rescuers are going door to door to try to reach the wounded. those who may have been injured by the secondary damage, if you will, the force of that explosion that destroyed so
on the boston marathon bombing case right now. nbc news has learned that investigators have obtained video of a person placing a black bag down near the scene of the blast and that authorities are looking to question that person. the footage has been described to nbc as providing, quote, solid leads in the case. as we told you last night, the fbi found black nylon bag fragments at the blast site and believe that's how the devices were transported to the scene, they've also recovered pieces of the pressure cooker bombs and the press has received official fbi photos of those fragments. we can also report tonight on the identity of the third fatality victim, she was a chinese citizen and grad student of mathematics and statistics at boston university. she was an only child and her parents had declined interview requests because, quote, every time we speak about this, it is like a dagger in our hearts. she was watching the marathon with two other students, one was injured in the explosion and is in stable condition. there are still about 60 people in boston hospitals who were injured, 12 still
consisted of just two bombs. nbc news has learned there were no other unexplode devices. at least five suspicious packages were destroyed and dozens had to be checked. in terms of suspects, right now there is no one in custody. however, police did interview a saudi man that was hospitalized with burns. they also searched his home in the boston suburb of revere and were seen removing items in bag. two men were being searched for. at this point it is not clear if the attack ornl natuiginated ov or domestically and there's been no credible claims of responsibility. today law enforcement sealed off the site of the explosions, an area stretching a mile long and about three blocks wide. streets are closed and the copley subway station is shut down. nobody is allowed into the area while the crime scene is active. >> that area is not going to be accessible for normal traffic. there are people in hotels, people who live there who have to work out how they get to and from where they need to be. but otherwise, i think it is fair to say that area is pretty much going to be locked down. >>> now for
, as the story continues to unfold. >> many thanks, hampton pearson from washington, d.c. with us tonight is nbc news terrorism expert and former director of the national counterterrorism center, that being michael lighter. also with us, the former director of terrorism studies at the u.s. military academy, associate professor james forest of u-mass lowell. and with me as co host, heather higgins, president and ceo of independent women's voice. mr. michael lighter, let me go back to the characteristics of the bomb, pressure cooker, kitchen timing device. ball bearings, bee-bees, nails, shrapnel. does this have the markings of a taliban attack, a pakistani, afghanistan attack, or am i mistaken? >> well, it is a very similar bomb structure that was used in times square in 2010. but i actually don't think that's the right thing to conclude right now. that's not the standard sort of explosives that the taliban has used in the past. and the pakistani taliban in this case has already denied responsibility for it. something -- i think they wouldn't have done had they ton it. so this helps give us some
tsarnaev. nbc news' pete williams joins us with all the details. good evening, pete. >> well, the combination of evidence here the government says they have, larry, the main thing here is from a surveillance video from the scene of a second bombing, they say they can see dzhokhar tsarnaev come into view. they see him work his way into the crowd, take his backpack off, lower it to the ground. they say still photographs show it down on the ground at his feet and they say one of the most telling moments is when the bomb at the first site goes off. everyone around him looks, virtually everyone, they say, but he is calm, staring straight ahead, not reacting at all. he briefly glances that way, appears to use his telephone, walks away, 13 seconds later the bomb goes off at his location. that's the photographic evidence. next is the forensic evidence. they say both the bombs were made in pressure cookers. they say the inside they had green hobby fuse and also bee-bees that were somehow had an ad he'sive on them. they owe owe an adhesive on them. they say the two suspects brothers, t
we do have some information tonight, cbs news reported that a saudi was acting suspicious, nbc said here a young person on a student visa. we aren't trying to jump the gun, we are trying to confirm any information they have. you have seen the reports. what can you tell us about them? >> the information we can report is the boston police say they do not have a suspect in custody. but what we know through our reporting is they had a person of interest that they were questioning and based on my report this evening, i believe one of these individuals was here on a student visa but that's really as far as we can go this evening. >> thanks so much for being with you. >> you're welcome. >> let's go back to mark furman to get his reaction of what we just heard. mark, did you glean anything out of that? >> certainly, sean. governor ridge was right on in everything that he said. we do not know exactly what the device is. i think they are sophisticated but they weren't sophisticated to all go off so something went sideways with this plan. and perhaps the person that was to detonate them remote
. as always, the voice of reason here at the family of nbc networks. thank you, sir. >> okay. >>> we are following an incredible amount of breaking news this morning. emergency crews are searching through the rubble in texas trying to find survivors from that massive fertilizer plant explosion. we expect to hear from officials there in texas and in fact we have that right now. instead of going to break, brwel bring you this press conference right now. >> my speaking up is about this. all i can tell you is good luck. >> 30 seconds out. we'll ask you not to step up. >> we are waiting now for a briefing here in west, texas, from authorities. as you can see they're doing mike test here to give us an update on exactly what's going on. a massive fertilizer plant. a fire started. firefighters were fighting it and then the explosion as that was happening. here's the briefing. >> bear with me on my voice. i'll talk the best i can and give you as much as i can but you're going to have to bear with me. if we get to the point of asking questions towards the end of this again, please speak loudly
